Well situated in Maun, René and Marije are great hosts. The huts are in African style and the outdoor shower is great. We enjoyed being here, we only had 1 night in here, but recommend everybody to be here at least two nights. Unfortunately we had no time to fly over the okavango delta.

Designed as an “African” experience and quite rustic and rural. About 20 minutes out of Maun – in a very quiet setting. There were 9 rondavels with thatched roofs arranged round a central area – all on sand. Our rondavel was number 7 – basic but very nice - en suite toilet and shower; double bed with mosquito nets; limited... More

We stayed here as a last minuite addition to our trip. It is a cute little family run place and very reasonable. A nice breakfast is included freshly cooked. The rooms are simple but have everything you need. The beds are very comfortable. We had a little ourside terrace to sit and watch the cat, chickens and birds. You can... More

We were booked into Discovery Bed and Breakfast by our agent and we couldn't have asked for anything better. Situated on the outskirts of town about 15 minutes from the airport, it was perfect for us to unwind after more than 24 hours of travel from Brisbane. The owners Marie and Renee are very hospitable and will go out of... More

I stayed here with three of my children for 2 nights. It is cosy and quirky, great breakfast, beautiful surroundings, very comfortable room. But the best bit was Renee and Marije. They were laid back, helpful, friendly and fun; Renee took us out to look for bushbabies.

We arrived after a 7 hour drive from Namibia. We were very happy with the location, outside of the city centre of Maun. Discovery is a very peaceful place and Rene and Marije are friendly and helpful. There are chickens roaming around as well as three cats, one of whom is very friendly. Breakfast was ample. The rooms are comfortable... More

At the end of a long and weary drive, we chanced upon Discovery B&B - a true jewel on the enge of Maun and the Okavango Delta. Comfy, really well maintained and extraordinarily hospitable and helpful. Thank You
